Hello Arduino Community!
For starters, I can now spell Arduino without looking at your logo!  Yeahaaa!  Anyway, I am thinking about a new Arduino project, which I would do after I learn Arduino better.  But, I wanted to know if this certain part of it would be possible.  The project will be in the Projects section here in a few....
So, I want to have a RC car, maybe controlled by Radio or XBee, I am not sure.  I want to have a camera on the car, and have it feed to a LCD built into the controller.  But, in order to start the thread in the projects area, I have to know what interface to do guys think I should use?  The LCD I want to use is here:
www.sparkfun.com/products/8335
It does not need to update frequently, so maybe XBee will still be able to do it?  The wireless security cameras avaible seem to be quite expensive, and would require additional components in the controller.  So, what interference do you think I should use for this project?
Thanks Guys!

Once a day?
Once a fortnight?

Well, I assumed when I said "Not Need to Update Frequently" and then "RC Car", you can assume that once a day or once a fortnight is a bit extream.  Just enough frames so you can see where the car is going at 10MPH without too much skipping.  Last I knew, XBee can do like 8FS can't it?  I do not know frames, because I have not watched videos and had the frame rate below the video.  So, maybe 8FS would be enough.

How much bandwidth have you got (bytes per second), and what does this look like divided by eight?
Where/how does the image get digitised?

Wireless cameras are not always expensive: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wireless-Internal-Pinhole-Security-Camera/dp/B001F5A38I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307301223&sr=8-1. It would require a TV or something similar, but would do the job well.
